In December 2007 my Department had a total of 106 staff in the senior civil service, of which six (5.7 per cent.) are recorded as working part-time.

Although not directly comparable, due to the 28 June 2007 Machinery of Government changes, the corresponding figure in the predecessor Department, the Department for Education and Skills, was 10 (7.63 per cent.) staff working part-time out of a total of 131 in the senior civil service, at December 2006. Figures for earlier years for the Department for Education and Skills can be found in the Civil Service Statistics Archive:
